As part of the SOS (Students Organising for Sustainability) Green Impact scheme, participating teams are required to be audited. NO PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED and volunteering is open to all Leeds Beckett students.

The Green Impact scheme is a behavioural change programme which Leeds Beckett and many other universities take part in. This consists of teams completing projects which contribute directly or indirectly to our sustainability. The more teams taking part, the better and this can has a positive impact on the university's plans to reduce its carbon emissions, environmental impacts and can help to improve biodiversity.

After having such a positive impact on educational institutions, the scheme was rewarded with the United Nations International UNESCO-Japan Prize on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) 2016. This was an international recognition of the positive impact the NUS Green Impact has had on the educational sector and beyond in the UK.

You can make sure this legacy continues by volunteering. Every individual action helps.
